Eenzame engelen.

Bussum: Uitgeverij Agathon, 1978. First printing of the second Dutch edition of Desolation Angels, translated by Peter H. van Liushout. Front cover artwork by André Thijssen. Originally published by Coward McCann in 1965, Desolation Angels is the wild and soulful story of the legendary road trip that Jack Kerouac took before the publication of On the Road, told through the persona of Jack Duluoz and accompanied by his thinly-disguised Beat cohorts Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and William Burroughs.

Crown octavo (8vo), 460 pp. In original pictorial matte-coated wrappers, perfect bound. There is a single reading crease to the spine, else just about near fine, tightly bound and clean. Additional photos available on request.
